This past Sunday I preached about being deeply rooted in the good soil of Jesus Christ, and finding our footing on the solid rock of God. One of the important ways we attend to this "posture", as it were, is through studying the bible, meditating on that message and letting it sink into our spiritual bones.
Here are some resources you may want to explore to help you do that. (Thank you to those of you who sent in resources you are currently using!)
Whether you approach scripture with many questions, with hunger for meaning, or with a wary hopefulness, do not hesitate to explore with honesty and willingness. You will likely be suprised at the places you find your mind and heart wandering. And it may well bring you a mysterious strength and wisdom for the places life calls you!
May you be blessed on the journey!!
These are simply the daily readings for each week during the current liturgical year. Sometimes just focusing on one reading is easier. Maybe picking up a journal, and writing down what strikes you that day.
A lovely online daily meditation guide. Takes you through a reading with an opening prayer, guiding questions and closing prayer.
For the more cerebral amongst us - you can sign up for a daily delivery of reflections on God, theology and scripture from Richard Rohr and many of the most provocative and insightful Christian thinkers of our time.
This is an accessible app that you can download to your phone or ipad and use for daily bible reflection.
